Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

Thanks Zach. My boat shed shoes are allowed in the house but not past the back door.

Sanding inside the hull is done. Vacuumed out. Tomorrow I'll build myself a work bench for 'Inside' the boat and start filling the kerfs etc. Let's hope the weather cooperates awhile longer. Was about 40 F this morning when I went out to the shed in my short sleeve shirt & shorts.

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

Kerfs filled. Started fillets along the side/bottom joint. Almost out of materials so have to wait for more to arrive.



Learned a lesson. Don't step in wet epoxy then walk in the house and across the kitchen floor!

Did a walk around tour on video. You'll find that on the blog update; http://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2014/09/do-n ... epoxy.html

My buddy Andrew's coming by tomorrow morning so we should get the shed roof fixed finally.

I need to teach that to my dog. He left paw prints all the way down the stbd side. Fortunately, it wore off before he got into the cockpit with the Treadmaster.

Fine epoxy art. Doesn't come cheap or easy!

Right out of supplies now. I managed to get about 25' of fillet done with the dregs of the wood flour bucket this morning.



Got a few days to wait for funds to hit my credit card before I can order more tape. Wood flour & cabosil are on their way so I'll still have time to get some more fillets done. Holy Crap there's a lot of them that need to be done!!!

How much effort is involved? Web log updated: http://she-kon.blogspot.ca/2014/09/how- ... olved.html

Standby.....

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

Still puttering away at the fillets etc. Got some wood flour from a different supplier this time. Not quite what I expected but workable.

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

That's it. I'm done for the season. I'll be back in the spring when I get proper materials to work with. It was a good year.

The biggest milestone this year was the flipping of the hull. Given our short building season up here I've got about a year and a half's work into the boat so far.

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

My buddy Peter was in need of some 'Sandtherapy' yesterday so he showed up, sander & sandpaper in hand to work on my boat. He's had a bit of a rough time this summer & fall so he considers any chance to hang out in the boat shed 'Therapy'. Who am I to stand in his way of pursuing 'good mental health' eh?



He jumped right in and started at it. The temp outside was a balmy -5C and inside the shed the same. Ideal conditions for sanding as Peter says. Me, I like it a lil' bit warmer but after some consternation I suited up and we went at it for an hour or so before a 'breakfast' break of MRD's. (Meals Ready to Drink).



Working on a video, "Bull Sh*t from the Boat Shed" to be online sometime today.

Tell me about it...

Brought my brother & his wife down from Langkawi to help me get the boat done.

2 weeks of supplying room and board adds up - LOL...

Cheaper than yard labor for sure though...

Re: And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

Rick,

I thought about you today... I think it was the cold weather on the east coast.

Hope all is well,

Zach
